    Fully recommend this book It is absolutely beautifully written the descriptions of the landscape bring you write in until you are there standing staring up at the wall and aware of the futility of everything I really liked the way it was told from the perspective of different characters and I thought all the characters were developed really well To be honest my only criticism was that it was too short I didn't want to leave the characters behind and felt really sad when the book ended
